- Melisa’s cat, Bootsy, spotted a little snake trapped in a little hole in their screen door.
- Melisa decided to make the hole bigger so the snake can move about freely.
- The snake, now named Snickers, has since become the family’s friend.
Melisa Taylor’s cat, Bootsy, loves hanging out by the screen door to observe the other critters outside. One day, he spotted a little snake that was stuck in a hole.
The hole was too small for it to get out, so Melisa waited for the snake to retreat back inside before drilling a bigger hole.
After a few minutes, the snake, now named Snickers, felt safe to venture outside.
Snickers went out of the hole and slithered away.
Melisa didn’t think much about it until he returned.
She shared, “Surprisingly, he was back within the next day or so. My cat spotted it again poking out of the hole and looking in the window.”
Thanks to the bigger hole that Melisa made, it can now get in and out whenever it wants.
She decided to make the hole an official home for Snickers, and added warning labels near it, so everyone will be mindful of him.
Melisa made the signs especially silly and fun, to bring joy to anyone who sees them.
“Most of them laugh or think it’s cute and wholesome. I’ve been thanked a lot for rescuing it from the tiny hole,” Melisa shared.
Snickers doesn’t always show himself every day.
But whenever he appears, Melisa and Bootsy are always happy to greet him.
He has become a part of their family!
Melisa shared, “It scares the venomous snakes away from my yard, and I am thankful for him.”
Some people may have been too scared of the snake and decided to drive it away, but Melisa gave it a home.
Melisa shares her encounters with Snickers and other animals on TikTok.
